Track Name: Repercussions
Repercussions
And who are you to even tell me what’s right
You can’t keep up with your own life
You’ve gotta’ face the facts
Courtesy is what you lack
You’ll never get far with that now will you

You made the conscious decision
To turn your back on what you loved
You have to keep yourself in check
‘Cause you’re miserable and your life’s a wreck
But there’s no one else to blame but you
For all the hell you put me through
And you’ll never know that you brought this on yourself

Someday you’ll see
That your actions affect me
And that’s hardly what I deserve

And you’ll never know that you brought this on yourself
It’s all falling perfectly into place
And you’ll never know that you brought this on yourself
And I’ll be there to watch you melt

To put this bluntly you’re acting like a child
You can’t live your life being so reckless and wild
And someday you’ll see that your actions affect me
And that’s hardly what I deserve

So put it down and get back up
Cause only you could make this hurt so much
It’s not too much for me to ask you to control your actions
It’s not too much to ask for you to have some self-respect
To put it down and get back up
‘Cause only you could make this hurt so much
Put it down and get back up

And you’ll never know that you brought this on yourself
It’s all falling perfectly into place
And you’ll never know that you brought this on yourself
And I’ll be there to watch you melt
Track Name: Levelheaded
You told me you wanted better for yourself
But I have yet to see you try
You have to harness the strength from within you
You’re just recycling lies
Recycling lies, always a game never the same
You have to open your eyes just to see what you already know

Never alone you’re not alone
Even when you’re on your own
I’m passing on what I’ve been told
I’m telling you, you have to grow
Don’t hold your breath there’s still something left
Even when you’re on your own
I’m passing on what I’ve been told
I’m telling you, you have to

Grow into a man become
The person you were molded from
The good the bad the in between
Stares like a mirror back at me
We drown in feelings that are not worth feeling
But through the learning the pain and the healing
You have to make your opinion known
Find the roots you once lost and grow

Never alone you’re not alone
Even when you’re on your own
I’m passing on what I’ve been told
I’m telling you, you have to grow
Don’t hold your breath there’s still something left
Even when you’re on your own
I’m passing on what I’ve been told
I’m telling you, you have to grow
(Not alone) Never alone (Hold Your Breath) There’s still something left
Track Name: Strength in Numbers
The words you say won’t bring me to my knees
You do not have control of my head

You’ll never make me change my mind
I’ll always feel the same
You will never get in my way
I’ve got my brothers by my side
And they will share my pain

And then I think to myself
Where would I be without them
Probably nowhere
Our way of thinking is rebellion
Follow my voice and you’ll see
That we’re resilient

Resilience is the key if you wish to overcome
Never backing down even when it’s tough
(The words you say won’t bring me to my knees
You don’t not have control of my head)
I won’t take your…
I won’t take your dignity
I only wish to bring you peace
And if you’re fast asleep just know that I won’t be
So sleep with one eye open cause I won’t be

And then I think to myself
Where would I be without them
Probably nowhere
Our way of thinking is rebellion
Follow my voice and you’ll see
That we’re resilient, resilience

The words you say won’t bring me to my knees
You do not have control of my head
Track Name: Know Better
Don’t try to take them all the long way
You can create yourself even on the shortest road [x2]

You have to think for yourself or you will always be held
To the standards of those who make your choice for you
Don’t be so afraid step up to the choice you made
Don’t try to take them all the long way
You can find yourself even on the shortest road

The only thing you need to know is I will never let you go
You’ve been clinging for too long and now it's time to let me go [x2]

You have to find yourself there's no one else
To calm this storm inside your head
Don’t let this be the end you'll find your way
Don’t let them sway your opinion

The only thing you need to know is I will never let you go
You’ve been clinging for too long and now its time to let me go [x2]

Don’t try to hide it’s easier to let it go
Don’t let the things they say be the person you know
You’ve ‘gotta get up
You know better
Don’t let this be the end of you
This heartache will not be the last stand
If you get up and set yourself free

The only thing you need to know is I will never let you go
You’ve been clinging for too long and now its time to let me go [x2]
Track Name: Bite The Bullet
It’s bleeding out my throat
It’s piercing through my skin
This feeling from within
It’s bleeding out my throat
And forcing me to choke
It’s like the devil on my shoulder
Is speaking loud into my ears

Yes I will walk the road less traveled
But I won’t leave you all behind
I’ll come back and make it right
This isn’t a choice for me
I just know what I was made to do
But don’t you dare turn your back on me
‘Cause you don’t know what I’ve been going through

Don’t carry this weight on your own
It’s not fair to yourself to make you do it alone
It’s an ongoing struggle I must overcome
But I’ll take a step back so it’s not overdone
We have to be strong we must carry on
This life as you know it will someday be gone
I can’t believe its real
With all these things I feel
Track Name: Voyager
I have to find my home
And if it’s not where it was back then
Then I’ll set foot on the road
To find myself to free my soul
I’ll shout it loud so everybody knows
I’m free I finally found me

I’ve traveled for so long
Just to be shot down and turned away
But I won’t leave until
I color in the grey

I have to find my home
And if it’s not where it was back then
Then I’ll set foot on the road
To find myself to free my soul
I’ll shout it loud so everybody knows
I’m free I finally found me

I felt abandoned since you walked away
I never told you I would be ashamed
I swear I’ll never regret it
But it’s still lingering in my mind
I’ve still been searching since you told me
You never listen to a word I said
I swear I’ll never regret it
But it’s still in my mind
Was it over when you walked away

I’m not afraid of what you told me
It’s hard enough to keep my focus clear
You think my confidence is folding
I’ll over come the fear
I’m not scared but I’d rather be anywhere but here
I will take you there before we disappear
I’m not scared but I’d rather be anywhere but here
I will take you there before we disappear

I have to find my home
And if it’s not where it was back then
I have to find my home
And if it’s not where it was back then
Then I’ll set foot on the road
To find myself to free my soul
I’ll shout it loud so everybody knows
I’m free I finally found me
I finally found me
I finally found me
Track Name: The Mind's Eye
This is the story of your procrastination
And all the things you fear
This is a figment of your imagination
Your thoughts are never clear
When will these thoughts go away
There’s never been a day of peaceful thinking in my life
When will my heart lead the way
And speak the words I want to say

Don’t let this control you
You have to speak up for yourself
Don’t let it destroy you
You have to let your voice be heard
Don’t let yourself be persuaded
By desires you don’t need
Your thoughts are all so jaded with all this greed

Don’t be so afraid this could be a good thing
You’ve carried the weight all this time
But now you’re dragging
You don’t know where to go

Don’t be so afraid
This could be a good thing
Don’t let your life slip away


Don’t let this control you
You have to speak up for yourself
Don’t let it destroy you
You have to let your voice be hear
Don’t let yourself be persuaded
By desires you don’t need
Your thoughts are all so jaded with all this greed

Jealousy can lead to worse things than greed
But the worst part is you do not know what you need
But imagination isn’t always a bad thing
Just think of all the possibilities you bring

Don’t second-guess but know your answer isn’t always yes [x2]
It’s hard to see past your selfish mind
When all the world can sit and watch it unwind
Track Name: Undaunted
They always told me be afraid of the dark
Always shouting I was cursed with a mark
It looked at me and said
“is it alive or dead?”
With grey cloaked eyes
Is it dead or is it alive

I should’ve never fell asleep
My restless soul can’t even weep
It creeps around the corner it sleeps under your bed
There’s no escaping things that live inside your head

It creeps around the corner it sleeps under your bed
There’s no escaping things that live inside your head
I should’ve never fell asleep

I should’ve never fell asleep
My restless soul can’t even weep
I should’ve never fell asleep
My restless soul can’t even weep
It creeps around the corner it sleeps under your bed
There’s no escaping things that live inside your head
I should’ve never fell asleep
I should’ve never fell asleep
Track Name: Lionhearted
I will stay level-headed I will hold on to my pride
I’ll remain the accolade I will light the way and hold my head up high

You are the accolade and you were chosen to light the way
Just be strong and know before long
Your heart will be golden your sin will be gone

Learn to speak for yourself
But don’t forget my friend that knowledge is wealth
You may remember this day looking back
Remember the courage you lacked
So ask yourself what do you have to lose

You are the accolade and you were chosen to light the way
You are the accolade and you were chosen to light the way
Just be strong and know before long
Your heart will be golden your sin will be gone

The wind was slowly shifting with silence over head
The weight was surely lifting
Accolade light the way
Don’t let your heart be caged
Don’t live in rage

This life is not a choice or a burden
And why we do this you may never be certain
But know we will never give up on the hope
This life is not a choice or a burden
And why we do this you may never be certain
But know we will never give up on the hope

You are the accolade and you were chosen to light the way
Just be strong and know before long
Your heart will be golden your sin will be gone
You are the accolade and you were chosen to light the way
Just be strong and know before long
Your heart will be golden your sin will be gone
Light the way
Track Name: Want To Change
ou are the barrier that blocked the light from your path
You are the carrier and you will find your way

When all you do is quit you call it trying
You’ve got to tell the truth instead of lying
Pick up your confidence and let it push you through
The only one who sees this through is you
And soon you’ll have to learn
You’ll have to learn to walk away
And soon you’ll learn
You’ll have to learn to walk away

You, you have to hold yourself
Accountable for everything you’ve done
Instead of running from yourself
Run away

You can never turn your back again
You have to tell yourself you want to change
Make yourself the person you want to be
Only you can set your mind free
Don’t let this begging you be the death of me
Only you can open up and see

You, you have to hold yourself
Accountable for everything you’ve done
Instead of running from yourself
Run away
Track Name: The Heart's Voice
I will be your voice

Illuminate the way
I can get there if you stay
It’s clear that I need you to be
Who I’ve always aimed to be

Now is the time to take a step back and realize
This isn’t just a way of thinking its what keeps us all from sinking
You’ve gotta' keep your head on straight

Illuminate the way
I can get there if you stay
It’s clear that I need you to be
Who I’ve always aimed to be

As sure as the night was cold
I knew I had to stand out and be bold
And as the wind cracks against my face
I’m reminded that I do this for the roots I trace

You gave me my voice
I know what I have to do
And now it’s no choice
I have to give it to you
I have to repay
Patience was never enough no it was never enough
It’s the only way

Illuminate the way
I can get there if you stay
It’s clear that I need you to be
Who I’ve always aimed to be

But it can’t just be all for me
Everyone deserves a chance to just be free
I have to share I have to let them know
Track Name: Single-Minded
I will be your voice

Illuminate the way
I can get there if you stay
It’s clear that I need you to be
Who I’ve always aimed to be

Now is the time to take a step back and realize
This isn’t just a way of thinking its what keeps us all from sinking
You’ve gotta' keep your head on straight

Illuminate the way
I can get there if you stay
It’s clear that I need you to be
Who I’ve always aimed to be

As sure as the night was cold
I knew I had to stand out and be bold
And as the wind cracks against my face
I’m reminded that I do this for the roots I trace

You gave me my voice
I know what I have to do
And now it’s no choice
I have to give it to you
I have to repay
Patience was never enough no it was never enough
It’s the only way

Illuminate the way
I can get there if you stay
It’s clear that I need you to be
Who I’ve always aimed to be

But it can’t just be all for me
Everyone deserves a chance to just be free
I have to share I have to let them know
Track Name: Substructure
He saw the signs but he refused to look behind
She said “My son what have you done
You’ll never know what you’ve become
My son you hold the gun
But the trigger is your tongue
So take away all the fallacy of fantasy
Stick to what you’ve known all your life
My son you’re the gun
But the trigger is your tongue
So take away all the fallacy and the fantasy
Stick to what you’ve known all your life”

The moon had surely melted once he gained the strength to try
But don’t let it fool you he came out the other side
He came out the other side

This journey is not hopeless
I will not settle for less
The meaning of my life
Was not a choice of mine
I’m in a rift I just need some time

That’s when he knew he was the only one to prove
He looked inside himself and saw
For all this time he has been so wrong
His only wish was to see clear
But it had stricken him with fear
It left his mind completely paralyzed
But soon he’d open up his eyes
He said I refuse to close my eyes
I will not be blind
I will open up my mind
It’s not make believe
It’s what it seems

This journey is not hopeless
I will not settle for less
The meaning of my life
Was not a choice of mine
I’m in a rift I just need some time

He said I won't close my eyes
I will not be blind
I will open up my mind
